THE PATH TOWARDS A BETTER SOCIETY BEGINS WHEN THE NEXT GENERATION ADOPT PROPER SOCIAL VALUES
We focus on improving children and young people overall well-being and social morality – especially those with the fewest of resources. We provide them with the opportunity they need for them to succeed in life and give them the proper social education to help them embrace the basic framework of a cooperative and mutually beneficial social life.
As we move into an era where technology is at its prime, travelling around the world is in a matter of hours and society becomes increasingly complex and heterogeneous, social morality is steadily losing their value as advertising becomes more sensual, immorality becomes the norm, and values such as honesty and integrity no longer play an important role in our daily lives.
Why have old moral values failed to continue in our society? Childhood is the time at which social morality begins to develop and in a process that often extends well into adulthood. The sad fact is a lot of children are not learning from their parents the difference between right and wrong because parents are usually busy at work days and spend only a few hours with them. In a society where families are unstable, when parents are absent, emotionally distant, or preoccupied, or when parents themselves are immorally inclined, the learning of moral values by children is greatly hindered.
By focusing on the common goal of improving the social morality around Asia, one-step at a time though education of our next generation—and by working together with schools, orphanage and child care centers to teach social values to children—we can transform our community into a better place to live in.
Yayasan CSMC Asia is committed to ensuring that all children in South East Asia are able to be taught proper social education and also providing children with the fewest of resources the opportunity they need to succeed in life. To work in concert towards this goal, multi-faceted, many-pronged approaches are taken to organize sessions for these children by life trainers across the board. Commencing from the basic levels where such sessions are conducted at constituent elementary locations up to the congregational levels.
